Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

Regrets are humans way to clean himself of their sins. To express regrets, one does good deeds to the people or turns back to God. The Brihadeeswarar Temple built by Raja Raja Chola I in 1010 AD stands as a symbol of his regrets in killing thousands in war of conquests. He turns back to please God and wishes his sins would be cleansed with the largest temple complex and tallest temple tower of his time.

    This is a very impressive post, great lesson in history, and beautiful building. It is amazing that it has stood all of these years. What a wonderful tribute to the Gods.
    Raja Raja Chola I must have really felt remorse to build such a beautiful temple.
